I like the porcupine because he got sharp quills on him and make the boat blast under the water.

It's a funny story and I like the chimpanzee most because in paramedic he sits in the ambulance and eats nuts. I recommend this book to know what will happen if we call animals in an emergency.

I found this book very funny. Animals are no good in an emergency, it is best left to the humans. The part I liked the best was when the animals got sent on holiday because they were no go in an emergency and better off having fun. The font cover made me want to read this to see why I shouldn’t call an elephant in an emergency. I would recommend this book to people that would like to see why shouldn’t call animals in an emergency.

We liked the picture at the back of the book that showed all the animals "having a chill". We also spotted a plane in the sky. If you have never seen this book you will like it!

I enyojed reading the book. I found it very funny. The funniest emergency animals are anteater, penguin, paramedic chimpanzee, and elephant :) The book is a bit long but I was happy to read it twice because I couldn't wait to meet another funny animal. I like it :)

It was pretty good. My favorite character was the elephant because elephants are my favorite animal. I would recommend this book to Florrie because she’s my friend.

Good story

Principal Cupcake Mouse 28.07.2020

The story was really funny with animals trying to do people's job. The mission failed.My favorite part was when the ant eater wet his pants. Ha ha ha. Animals deserved a holiday instead of working.
